Dhanvantari, deity of Ayurveda

Ayurveda is based on a profound and complete understanding of the human being. It is one of the oldest medical systems in practice today. This ancient healing tradition dates back to time immemorial when Indian Seers passed down their extensive knowledge in the form of the Vedic teachings.

The aim of Ayurveda is to ensure a long and healthy life so that we are able to fulfill our duties in this world to the best of our abilities.

In Ayurveda, understanding a disease is based on 3 main functional patterns, or ’Doshas’, that work in nature and also in our bodies: Vata, Pitta, and Kapha. The ’Doshas’ directly relate to the five great elements of Pritvi, Ap, Tejas, Vayu and Akasha, that exist in every life form and within every material manifestation.

The deep knowledge and understanding of these elements that is found in Ayurveda is the basis for Ayurvedic diagnosis and treatment. Ayurvedic healers select appropriate medicines and treatments, while empowering patients with key advice on proper diet and routine activities that combined bring long-lasting and deep healing as per each individual’s particular needs.

Ayurvedic medicines are made from completely natural substances including roots, barks, seeds, fruits and others, which are prepared according to ancient recipes. Producing Ayurvedic medicines can take weeks, months, and sometimes even years, with many intricate steps and a variety of ingredients involved in an individual composition.

At Amrtasiddhi we believe that medicines, diet and activity recommendations have to work hand-in-hand and cannot be separated.
